Hollow 'investigation'Teddy GreensteinChicago TribuneNot to put it in overly dramatic terms, but I put as much stock in the NCAA's Auburn investigation as Pat Tillman's family put in the Pentagon's
Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
Once again a no name slinging his S**t to get some attention. His opinion means nothing.

It seems that many of the so-called "experts" just fall all over themselves to point out that the NCAA doesn't have the same power as our Judicial system. While the lack of subpoena power may be a disadvantage is some ways for the NCAA in forcing someone to talk, the flip-side of that that the "experts" fail miserably to ever mention, is that the NCAA does NOT have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that something necessitating punishment ever took place as our Judicial system does. If the NCAA has ANY suspicions that something nefarious happened, there are no protocols for a defense against the prosecution, or a jury of peers to hear and weigh evidence, or a judge to issue a verdict. The NCAA doesn't have to answer to ANYONE. They only answer to themselves, which is a distinct advantage for them, and a major disadvantage to any program being investigated.
How convenient to always leave out that Auburn was fighting a fight that regardless of freaking subpoena power, the NCAA can do what it wants if it finds even a HINT of wrong doing. And there was NONE.
"Listen, Carnell Williams has been an inspiration to this football program and to this university. We're going to miss him when he's gone."
Some in the media would have only been satisfied with one outcome - Auburn getting hammered by the NCAA. When the facts do not support that outcome they take a different approach - they start questioning the entire system or throw out laughable comparisons to criminal cases. The refusal to accept the truth confirms what we already suspected - they have no objectivity in the matter.Their "reporting" is to be taken for what it is - the biased opinon of someone with media access. They can wallow in the ink of bitter disappointment for years. The truth has set us free.
Good friends are hard to find. Enjoy every moment you have with them.
